Yes. 'Probate' is the term used when you are selling a vehicle on behalf of someone who has recently passed away. We are able to support this process, but it is important to let us know the vehicle is on probate when you first speak to us.
We appreciate that handling the administration involved in cases like this can be very stressful, and we want to help support anyone in this situation as much as we can.
If you are selling a vehicle on behalf of someone who is deceased, you will need a copy of the Death Certificate. Provided the vehicle is worth less than £10,000, dealers in our network can usually pay the next of kin. If the vehicle is over £10,000 in value, then the buying dealer may need to have probate granted (allowing them to buy from the executor); or if not, they will need a letter of authority from the estate's solicitor to sell. Please confirm this in advance with us or ask our team for help or advice on this process, if you have any questions.
